Prestigious International Awards Program Recognizes Outstanding Educational Technology Products and Companies
LOS ANGELES, Calif., – June 8, 2023 – EdTech Breakthrough, a leading market intelligence organization that recognizes the top companies and solutions in the global educational technology market, today announced that CrisisGo, a leading provider in emergency communications, incident management, and student & staff health management, has been selected as winner of the “Next-Gen School Solution Provider of the Year” award in the 5th annual EdTech Breakthrough Awards program.
CrisisGo is an advanced alerting and communication mobile application. The company provides simple and smart panic button solutions for every scenario and every role to keep schools safe. The newest integration offers school staff the ability to handle any crisis with two-way communication.
CrisisGo has partnered with Siyata Mobile and their SD7 handset to equip schools with a Next-Gen Panic Button. The SD7 allows for immediate communication with first responders in real-time. During critical events, this solution brings the first responder into the crisis the moment the SOS button is pressed, providing them with critical information for when they arrive on site, including the tracked location.
With this two-way Push-to-Talk (PTT) device, staff can send instant, definitive alerts not only to their safety teams but also to first responders with an integrated CrisisGo SOS button. With just a few clicks, the device can send a staff assist alert and a voice message to safety teams, or initiate lockdowns, evacuations, and other high-level alerts directly to first responders along with a voice message. PTT allows first responders to communicate with anyone with an SD7.
In advance of any emergency, CrisisGo also has plans and guides to conduct threat assessments and give staff and teachers the confidence to be situationally aware of potential issues. With CrisisGo, schools are easily able to perform risk reporting, escalate alerts to other facilities, enable rostering of students, and complete reunification.
Unfortunately, in most K-12 schools, safety and security aren’t as well adapted as they could be, and in critical event scenarios, before the arrival of emergency personnel, teachers and staff have to manage the situation on their own. CrisisGo addresses this challenge head-on, innovating technology and approaches that provide life-saving details when seconds count to those who matter most in these situations. The entire CrisisGo platform is holistic and comprehensive with every need supported from preparation to recovery. We’re proud to award them with the ‘Next-Gen School Solution Provider of the Year’ award.
